Cuckmere Haven 3/3/16

A nice morning down the Cuckmere today produced an unexpected Black-tailed Godwit on the scrape. Also noted here was a very showy Scandinavian Rock Pipit that allowed very close approach.

A quick check at Hawk's Brow produced no hoped for Wheatears.

March is the optimum time to spot 'Scandys' and the Cuckmere has always been a prime site to see them. There were lots of Rock Pipits about today but as it was low tide most birds were in the 'saltmarsh' and were only seen in flight, except this one individual captured below.

Totals are:
Black-tailed Godwit - 1
Scandinavian Rock Pipit - 1
Greenshank - 1
Long-tailed Tit - 5
Snipe - 1
